Two clubs from Tipperary got the chance to play where their heroes play, at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 30th April, for the Aviva National Mini Rugby Festival. Over 2,000 boys and girls from all over Ireland participated in the four provincial festivals over the past two months, which were hosted at Ballyclare RFC, Ballina RFC, UL Bohemians and Co Carlow RFC. Cashel RFC Under 10s boys team & Fethard U12 girls team got to play at the National Festival which was held in the home of Irish Rugby, the Aviva Stadium, for the third time thanks to Aviva’s sponsorship of Mini Rugby. Ireland and Connacht star Robbie Henshaw, Irish women’s international Jenny Murphy and Leinster and Ireland’s Fergus McFadden were there on the day to give tips and advice to all the players and coaches in attendance. Each of the competitors on the day received a certificate of participation signed by Irish Internationals Jamie Heaslip, Rory Best & Robbie Henshaw.
